    Dr Novacek is an excellent Neurologist who I have seen for 7 years. She is very professional, caring, and always listens to any concerns that I have. She answers my questions and has never seemed rushed although I know that she has a very busy schedule.

    Made a longer appointment because I had questions (which I sent ahead so I didn't surprise her and didn't forget). She came in late, kept looking at her watch, and left early. I forgot a couple questions because I got flustered and didn't get a new appointment.

    It was a good experience. There were a number of delays and rescheduling however.
